wow...

school is officially over...finished my last diploma yesterday...signed the theatre wall today (big surprise i got to do that, didn't even think art kids did...usually i thought it was just the actors...)...and now, no more!

it was a nice goodbye though.

so now summer is here! and i'm tackling many projects...two comics (one of which is TeamCl-17 ) commissions, portfolio work and just general arting...i have an art show-ish thing going down around the 13th, so i've been trying to make tons of stuff for that...soon some of it'll be done and i'll actually be able to post!

other than that, i've decided to skip out of emily carr in pursuit of some free time, a better portfolio, and a school more fitting to my tastes...
so if anyone has ideas about good art schools for illustration down in the states, i'd love to hear about them!

anyways, that's all for now...

p.s. oh, and radioblur still needs more commissions...he's managed to be even more broke than me and his waiting list is altogether too empty...

COMMISSIONS:
1. Cruzle -- done!
2. Efeu -- working on
3. CheleKat -- pending
4. CoffeeAddict-02 -- pending
still open for more! info here ---> theumbrella.deviantart.com/jou…

you're skipping out??

you're lucky, i don't want to go either...
(i feel like the school is going to be filled with pretentious buttpoops : < )

personally, i would try for SVA in new york. i hear they have a strong illustration program?

heheheh, i'm sure it won't be all that bad, and some of the fourth year kids' stuff was absolutely mindblowing...but i can't wait that long...and in all honesty, ECIAD graduates never really seem to get anywhere...which is saddening...
but you'll do amazingly and blow everyone else out of the water!

yeah...i think me plan will just be to throw my portfolio at a whole bunch of different schools and see what happens...but SVA's illustration program has an amazing rep...mmmm...

no kidding, eciad alumni usually end up in jobs completely unrelated to their degree, LOL

i doubt it, i sort of missed the opening of class registration, so i'm in sculpture instead of design now, haha : D

yea, SVA is my dream school. i'm thinking of applying after foundation year...

heheheh, yeah...so saddening...

oh no! that's so sad! well, i mean, their sculpture courses are still cool, but design, DESIGN! it's such your thing...i'd try and switch into it as soon as school starts...

i'd do it, for sure! well...i guess that's what i was planning on originally anyways...but yeah, you totally have the skills for it!

it's just a sort of tradition at my school...teachers select kids mainly involved in the arts that are graduating to leave a departing inspirational quote on the back hallway/alcoves behind the stage...and somehow i got picked to do it, which was cool...

i wish we could do something like that, but our performing arts centre is about three years old, much too young for traditions.

then it's a good time to start!

I'm reeeally really tempted...but I should probably check with the teachers before I start writing all over the walls. XD
